Need some help with your accounting? Zapier can automate your workflow from start to finish so you can stay focused on shipping those orders.

This Multi-Step Shopify-FreshBooks integration will watch for any new Shopify orders: any new one will trigger the Zap, searching for a matching client on FreshBooks. If one is found, an invoice will be created for them; otherwise, a new client and invoice will be created automatically.

How It Works


A new order is paid on Shopify

Automatic Zapier Actions:

  1. A FreshBooks client is found or created automatically
  2. A new invoice is created for them on FreshBooks
